The Institute for Professional Development and the CAAHE Student Services Conference Planning Committee are pleased to announce that the Tenth Annual Student Services Conference will be hosted by the Institute for Professional Development and held in Scottsdale, Arizona on October 19 and 20, 2006.
This year marks the tenth consecutive year IPD and CAAHE have collaborated on an annual student services conference to celebrate and recognize the important contributions of student services staff to the success of our accelerated adult programs. In keeping with this milestone, the theme of our conference this year is "A Decade of Excellence…and Still Going Strong." This year the conference will be one and one-half days in length: 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, October 19, and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, October 20.
As before, those participants who attend the Student Services Conference will be responsible for their own transportation to the conference. IPD will again pay hotel lodging for up to two nights (Wednesday and Thursday) for two student services participants from each of our partner institutions or for one participant from each site for those institutions with multiple sites. All scheduled meals (breakfast and lunch on both Thursday and Friday) and a special evening of dinner and entertainment on Thursday evening will also be paid for by IPD. Conference attendees will be staying at the Scottsdale Marriott.
